Witherslack Group

Founded in 1972, The Witherslack Group began in the North West of England but has since expanded so that we now work in partnership with parents, more than 70 local authorities and wider communities throughout the UK, providing for children and young people across the range of Special Educational Needs.

Many of our settings are housed in beautiful, unique buildings and individual schools or homes each have their own character and offering for the young people there. What remains consistent is quality of provision and quality of outcomes, a reflection of our values.

The Witherslack Group always puts the interests of each young person first and will only accept a placement into our Schools and Homes when the Head Teacher / Home Manager is confident, having considered the needs of the individual and the cohort, that we have the specific resources to provide the stability of placement necessary to build resilience and confidence and so enable us to deliver the best possible outcomes for the young person.

We are experienced in offering a range of possible care and education packages, including day, residential and 52 week provision. We work effectively with Local Authorities and external agencies to ensure every aspect of children’s needs are met and that a move into one of our settings quickly produces positive outcomes.
